Current Web Project: Steve Louw

I have been very involved since the beginning of April 2021 with re-establishing the Online Presence for South African musician Steve Louw

Steve has been around since the early 80’s and he released his new album Headlight Dreams on the 7th May 2021 and it has been attracting a lot of positive attention.

I have done a number of things including revamping his website, regular blogging, setting up a Facebook Page, creating various Playlists, and being his Media Strategist.

Playlists:

A playlist is a list of songs that can be listened to on some device or other. The order can usually be rearranged or shuffled.

Mixes:

A mix is a compilation of tunes in a specific order that are usually blended or cross-faded to create a unique experience. DJ mixes are probably the best of example of a mix, however there are many different styles and genres that can be mixed such as podcasts and radio shows.

Building Websites Since 1997

Vagabond’s World

I have been building websites since October 1997, before Google, Wikipedia and Facebook even existed!

I was involved in the amazing Searching For Sugar Man story and Stephen “Sugar” Segerman and I co-founded the South African Rock Music Digest in January 1999.

My fledgling Vagabond website from 1997 can be still be seen at Vagabond’s World.
